Electric Boys - Ups!de Down (2021)

The boys have finished recording their latest effort, and are set to release it next year. Sometime. No date given, yet. 

Normally, I would be excited by such news, but Franco left the band due to differing opinions, and Niclas didn't play a single beat on the album. 

Now, they did replace Franco with Martin Thomander who was the guitarist on Freewheelin', so he's at least familiar with the Electric Boys brand, and will possibly bring back that darker, heavier edge. And Niclas is still in the band, but he lives in L.A., so, due to 2020 being all fuckied, he couldn't be present for recording. 

Anyway, perhaps I should wait for the first single before I judge. 

Also, they've extended their record deal for another three albums, so if I'm getting worked up over nothing, and this "new" lineup is still very much Electric Boys, or possibly even better, then that's great news.

I really enjoy this band, but I have no idea who anyone is in this band.
in fact that goes for amny bands these days.
Maybe it's just not having the times to look it up, or maybe I just don't care that much any more lol

Niclas being in the USA has been an issue ever before the pandemic. I got the last album on CD signed by the whole band except him, and he essentially just signed a bunch of post it note sized pieces of paper and sent them to the band to sick inside the CD case.

A little teaser for their first single--and I mean teaser--Super God.

Fun fact: apparently Conny did all the drawing.

I had to go check my copy. They signed my vinyl, not the CD, and, yeah, there was the little piece of paper. I recall now when it arrived how I thought that was stoopid.

But him living in LA only meant we didn't have him sign our albums. He still played on the damn album. So it wasn't really an issue, until now. 

Oh, well, I guess it means we all get to properly judge Jolle on his performance. With no input from Niclas, this album is solely the new guy. Interesting thing to note is, according to Conny, Jolle came up with the main riff for "Super God." So maybe he'll have even more influence on songwriting. 

Side note: I'm constantly amazed at how many drummers are also proficient singers, lyricists, and songwriters. I guess it surprises me, because I'm used to jokes from other musicians about drummers being a dime a dozen.

Didn't give it plenty of spings over the weekend. I was out of cell service, and then my phone died.

Super God, Tumblin' Dominoes, and It's Not the End are the highlights for me.... the rest is very "meh" unfortunately.

At least those three tracks are pretty damn good though.

People want more lips and hips?
Same as a song they made in 1988?
Guarantee if they released and album like that now it would do nothing.

This is a great release.
Tumblin' Dominoes sounds like an Angels song with Doc singing.

no people just want some decent songs.

I was excited after Tumblin Dominoes as that is a great track but a lot of the rest just doesn't measure up.
